year the Inducements offered to settlers
here rather than any fpeciai causes of
discontent In their own countries. Of
tha toial steerage Immigration there came
from Europe &ICM7. from Asia SfiSt and
from all other sources 12.373.
If to these figures are added those rep

that the total immigration of aliens to
the United States during the year aggre

"As regards the; rejection of diseased

New York. Oct. 2(.-John S'eley Ward.
Jr a member or the Itosrd of Managers
of the New York Association for Im
proving the Condition of the Poor, has
just returned from Europe, where, during
the summer, he visited several hospitals
ami sanitariums devoted to the treatment
nnd caro or tuberculous children.
The association meets soon and it will
take up the question of the practicability
of building in this city a hospital ex
clusively for tuberculous children.
Mr. Ward collected full natlsUcs of the
institutions he ilslted. and these together
with a large number of photographs
which he had taken of the buildings,
grounds, wards, and patients, will be pre
sented. Mr. Ward also i chairman of ttie De

charitable organization known as L'Ueu

because he thinks that it Is Just the wrt

of tubenuinsls children here. Tne build

Mr. Ward is or the opinion that the
most desirable site for the proposed hos
pital would be at Coney Island, where the
association now supports a seaside homo
for children. A hospital modeled some
what on the lines of Ormeson and con
taining 10) beiu?. Mr. Ward thinks could
be built for 1KMW. that amount to In
clude also the cost of the land.
To exemplify the work done at thes
hospitals it may be stated that at Or
meson in 13W2. 71 patients left the hospital.
Of these 41 wero cured. 21 Improved. 2 re
mained stationary, and 4 died. At Villier-sur-SIarne.
where there are 211 bed. IS
patients left in 1M2. Of that number 61
were cured. 3S improved. 4 remained sta
tionary. 14 became worse and 12 died.
While in London Mr. Ward devoted
much of his time to an examlnaUon of
tlio system of public baths. "In that re
spect." lie said. "I don't know that we
can ever hope to equal London." Be
sides being places where one can bathe,
they are places of amusement and recre
ation. London, for purposes of govern
ment, is divided into twenty-elgnt bor
oughs, and it is the business of each bor
ough to provide Its public baths.
There are forty public baths In London,
and almost without exception they are
liandsomo and substantial buildings, the
one at Lambeth, for instance, representing
an investment of POO.0V. The I'rince of
Wales Itoad Bath In St. Pancreas, the
Shoredltcb Batlis. and the Holbom Baths
ars Kcarcely less costly. These and with
very few exceptions all the other baths,
have a large swimming pool where swim
ming is taught and where races arc held
pvnodlcally.An admission of d Is charged
to witness the races, and Mr. Ward said
that on one occasion when he happened to
drop into one or these exhibitions the
building was crowded.
The value of all the Imdon public
baths. Including the sites and buildings. Is
J7.Svu.S0u. They are supported In part by
nominal fees which are charged. Some of
the newer ones are equipped with rooms
where women, who have not sufficient
room at home, can wash clothes.
In this dty there Is one public bath on
Hivlngton street, which Is open ail tho
jear round, and two others are nearing
completion, and JMS.C0O has been appro
priated with which to buUd six more, and
kites for four of them have been selected.
About i2S.cn persons maue use ot tne JUV'
